As you all know I have a stationary bicycle and that's my main form of cardio. We have also been playing around with the idea of getting some kind of home gym for weight training and a treadmill. I found a decent used home gym on craigslist for sale for $175. Here's a pic.
For the treadmill I'm on the fence about whether we should buy it used or not. I'm concerned about buying one, taking it home, only to find out it doesn't work and I won't have any company to complain to just some random person I bought it from. Since it's electrical, versus a home gym that isn't, that's the main reason I'm on the fence about buying it used. On top of that the price savings isn't that great. I might be able to get a used treadmill for $200-$250 (that's a big might, though, since there are plenty that are listed for more than that), whereas a new treadmill from Walmart (that's where I bought my bike) that has all the bells and whistles I'd want (I'm not too picky) is just $377. So what's your opinion. New or used?
